core i7 released on stores today

Today is the day that the Core i7 processors and the x58 motherboards are being sold online and at retail stores. This is supposed to replace the Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Quad processors, but the initial price is way too expensive for many people. At the lowest price, an i7 processor and a x58 motherboard will set you back at least $550. I've only recommend these to people who are early adopters or just have a PC that is older than three years. Not all of the x58 motherboards are released yet. The rest will show up in December in time for Christmas shopping. With the economy in a slump, I suggest waiting for discount prices on the latest technology because people are holding on to their money. As for me, I'm waiting till December to see if prices drop then I might consider buying them.
